China's CCTV has been criticized for its extensive coverage of Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath, according to ChinaSMACK.

While U.S. news channels are known to provide hours of storm coverage, many Chinese questioned why China's media was providing more coverage on the storm abroad than it did for domestic weather events that have caused damage nearly as severe but with much less attention. Do you think the media in the U.S. and China have provided too much coverage pre- and post-Hurricane Sandy?
